Just the relaxing location and atmosphere I needed after trekking in Bukit Lawang. The location is just outside the centre of Tuk Tuk (1.3-2km depending on where you want to go). Nice and peaceful, wake up on the waterfront and dive into the lake or sit on a reclining chair reading a book. The staff are very helpful, can organise... More

Arrived in torrential rain and departed in glorious sunshine. I indulged in accommodation and got a lake view suite ( think comfy bed, clean room, balcony and well tiled shower), no hot tub;-) Food was excellent, motorbike rental reasonable, onward transfer assistance not a problem. Good stay. Would go back.

5 of us went for a trip to Danau Toba after our event in Binjai cancelled by organizer. Decided to go here and reserved 3 units of standard room. Our first steps is not so good. The boat that ferry us "left" us 3.5km away from the cottage even though we told the boat to took us there. The reason... More

After 1 month travelling trough Sumatra we chose to stay at the Mas Cottages for our last accommodation. We really enjoyed our stay, especially the extremely nice view from our balcony. We can highly recommend the deluxe room, which was very clean and there is even hot water and a sink (not common in Sumatra!). The food was OK but... More

We stayed for a week in May in the new block of rooms. we had lovely view from our balcony. The room was spacious and clean, with a good shower. We felt the room was good value for money, but thought a simple breakfast could be included in the price. Mas cottages is about 20/30 minute walk outside of tuk... More

Right by the lake. There is not a huge menu, but the food is good. People here are very friendly - I did notice a couple of comments on TripAdvisor saying the service was good but only towards westerners - my girlfriend and I are Asian, we didn't feel any bad attitude and enjoyed our stay. The only downside is... More

Stayed here with some friends for three days. The rooms are basic and clean, the view from the room is breathtaking as you are by the lake. The service is ok but could be better. One of the staff (the only one who served us during our stay) is sometimes friendly and in the other times very unhelpful. The location... More

This inn relies its value on the proximity of the Toba Lake. Situated only a few meter from the famous volcano-lake of Indonesia, this inn is rather modest, however. The ambience is nice for a silent retreat, as the inn is situated in a quiet part of the village. Menu of the inn needs some improvement, but vegetarian dishes are... More

We absolutely loved our stay here! The cottages are basic. But the service was great and on such a nice secluded part of the village. We loved the community feel, it has such a great area for meeting people. Amazing view from the balcony and all rooms. It was magic. Staff were kind and helpful. Although your best to organize...

The service at this resort was fantastic. The staff were very attentive and interested in making our the stay the best it could be. The staff had a smile at any time of day...even when they had only four hours sleep. Food was excellent and great value. Beautiful location and we received an upgrade.
